Fairfax says he is a "Renaissance man" and "one of Australia’s most respected analysts." Stephen Koukoulas concludes that he is "85% right", and "would make a great Opposition leader."

European Central Bank awards me gold star...Seriously!

As you can see below, I actually got the "central banker of the year" award. That's what happens if you play the ECB's very cool new interest rate management game and win.
